View Full Version : Question about clean windows install on G74SX

02-05-2012, 11:30 PM
So I've had my G74SX-XA1 for just over a month, and have been reading comments in this forum about doing a clean windows install or factory install right when you get the G74. So I haven't done this, and I'm thinking about doing this, but I just wanted to know if there is any noticable performance increase while playing games like Battlefield 3.

Doubtful you'll get a performance increase in an individual app, unless you run way less processes in the background, but you can do that by killing them manually with the task mangler before running your game...no need for a reinstall. I would think newer graphics drivers would give you more of a fps boost.

The clean install rather increases OS stability and reliability, and decreases OS load times and therefore overall system performance. It really is an indispensable thing to do to maximize your G74. Besides, you gotta do it at some point (semi-yearly), as Windows corrupts itself eventually.

Whenever I see one of these "seed spammers," I send a quick report to the forum. (I already did with this one.) The mods have gotten better about eliminating this stuff quickly.....so it should be gone by tomorrow. :)
